Subject: RE: Folklore: Guns on planes
Sian, travelers can transport firearms as checked baggage. I'm sure one needs to have a permit for same, and I'm pretty sure that you're not allowed to carry ammunition at all.
Some states, so I've heard, are strict on ground transport of guns, too. In Massachusetts, for example, if you are found to have a gun in your car and no permit on hand, you are in deep guacamole. Of course there are parts of the country where folks carry their long arms in plain view in their trucks.
